JANUZAJ: “HE IS BETTER THAN ALL OTHERS AND I HOPE HE RENEWS”

He is training like never before. I hope he continues. He can do it a lot. Better because he is a player than when he is well, it is differential. When I have not put him it is because he saw others better and now he is better than others. Hopefully he can renew, of course I would like him to continue. Players like him, especially when it is well, there are few “.

MERINO: “IT HAS COME VERY WELL, YOU WILL SEE IT”
“You are going to see it. Merino has been very good. He left with discomfort, but day by day he has been improving. He is very good. He has done everything. He is perfect.”
ILLARRAMENDI: “HE HAD A LITTLE DOWN AND IS NOT GOING TO ENTER”
“Asier is not going to come in. He had a small relapse when he was getting close to a good level. It was mild. He is training. You know how important Asier is. When he is well, he will give us a lot. We have to be cautious. He has taken a little step backwards. Let’s see if he recovers the feeling he had 10 days ago. He was approaching a very good one. “
